ROHNERT PARK, Calif., 30 Nov. 2016. LEMO USA in Rohnert Park, Calif., is introducing design changes to the company's T series, watertight (IP68) connectors for military, security, aircraft test and measurement, and medical applications.

The outer shell design changed to LEMO's standard look, and the connector now has three latches vs. two latches. Applications include aircraft communications, land vehicles, night-vision equipment, simulation or personal battle equipment, as well as in the test & measurement and other industries wherever the environmental conditions require ruggedized equipment.

The T series connectors are small sized watertight connectors using the same original LEMO push-pull technology. Based on the LEMO B series, the T series includes a special construction with an inner-sleeve and extra sealing to enable IP68 water protection.

The T series is available in 2-to-9-contact configurations. Contacts can be terminated by soldering to the wire, crimping onto the wire, or directly to a PCB. A keying system ensures correct connector alignment and the connector outer shell offers EMI shielding.

The T series is backward compatible with the B series, with the same receptacle panel-hole diameter, for upgrade to existing designs. The connector outer shell is available in black-chrome finish or plated brass.
